cbe_helpful: Visitors can rate articles (based on wlk_helpful)

This plugin has two functions: rate an article by voting plus or minus, and return a list of best (or worst) rated articles.

This is a recovery of wlk_helpful, and as such it is able, at its first activation, to recover the data.

It additionnaly provides

  • an administrator interface accessible from the panel plugins or extensions tab
  • a better control of the display
  • the ability to define a minimum lapse of time between two votes having the same IP address

Makes use of the jQuery library and rah_external_output plugin.

Merci :)

Latest news:
Source data (in wlk_* tables) may in certain cases be inconsistent.
If you have problems using cbe_helpful, it may be the reason. Don’t hesitate in this case to drop a message, I’ll do my best to establish a diagnostic and help you repair what can be repaired.

Re: cbe_helpful: Visitors can rate articles (based on wlk_helpful)

Version 0.2 released !

  • cbe_helpful_list can now display cbe_helpful_score, cbe_helpful_yes, cbe_helpful_no, like this :
<txp:cbe_helpful_list label="Top10" label="h2" limit="10">
  <txp:permlink><txp:title /></txp:permlink>(<txp:cbe_helpful_score />)
</txp:cbe_helpful>
  • also fixed a bug in list sorting when using ratio or percent display
  • restore and repopulate table prefs with defaults if damaged or destroyed (don’t ask me why I had this idea …)

Re: cbe_helpful: Visitors can rate articles (based on wlk_helpful)

Looks great, but I’ve been unable to get this plugin to work. Any tips? Here’s what I checked:

jQuery is loaded and working (v1.3.2 should be OK, right?)
rah_external_output is installed and activated
cbe_helpful is activated :-)
No errors or warnings in the JS error console.

I am using the demonstration tags from the documentation. But when I click on “Yes” or “No,” nothing happens.

Please let me know if there’s anything I’m missing here. Thanks for developing this plugin!

Mmmmh … not sure. The plugin was developed with jQuery 1.6.1

Re: cbe_helpful: Visitors can rate articles (based on wlk_helpful)

Hello:

Nice plugin! I’m playing with it for a new site, but I found a problem with it. The plugin asumes that every time is invoqued it must to show a lot of info.

In my case, I would like to display only de <txp:cbe_helpful_score /> in articles lists (normal article lists, not when using <txp:cbe_helpful_list />) leaving the voting functionality to the individual articles.

In my article list form tried this:

<txp:cbe_helpful label=”“ wraptag=”“><txp:cbe_helpful_score wraptag=”“/></txp:cbe_helpful> to retrieve only the score data per article, but it gives me this:

<div class=“helpfulrater”><li style=“display:none;” class=“thisid”>18</li><li style=“display:none;” class=“unit”>percent</li><span title=“Score” class=“value”> 0,00 %</span></div>

I think it is a lot of code only for display “0,00%”. Couldn’t it be possible to ad a param or something to be able to retrieve only the score of an article? ( 0,00 % in the example)?
